UK To Provide Support For Young Job Seekers
There were around 32.7 million people employed in the UK in the three months to April 2022. This is just above the figures for the same period last year. That's according to the latest Government statistics which illustrate how the economy is managing in the light of the Covid 19 pandemic.

High Energy Bills Pushes More Disabled People In To Poverty
Disabled people in the UK are facing an almost impossible choice between heating their homes or finding the right food that they need to survive. The cost of energy has been rising month after month and due to problems with the supply of raw materials from Russia or Ikraine. Ever since Russia invaded and countries from Western Europe have come to their defence, Rissia has threatened retaliation by created problems in the supply of crude oil and other raw materials.

Thinking about going green and improving the rate at which you recycle different products and packaging? With the temperature in different countries increasing all the time due to the amount of carbon dioxide and other gases in the atmosphere, there couldn't be a more important time to stop unnecessarily throwing away products such as paper, cardboard, glass bottles and jars etc. If you're thinking about turning over a new leaf and increasing the rate at which you recycle, it could be easier said than done. That's according to one group of waste and recycling experts. That's because many major football clubs are languishing at the bottom of the table when it comes to acting responsibly.
Rishi Sunak Delivers Spring Statement
Rishi Sunak has delivered his Spring Statement to the House Of Commons in which he gave details on how the economy was managing in the light of the Covid 19 pandemic and in the aftermath of the Brexit vote. Following the vote to leave the European Union, many people who were living in the UK from the European Union, or who were working for UK based companies will have had to leave unless they qualified for a so called “Settled Status”. This may have left many businesses who depend on workers from the European Union short handed as they will now have a number of vacancies which they will have to fill in order to cater for the clients they serve. This will have left them facing a short fall in the amount of revenue they will have built up through their businesses and will leave them having to resort to apply for benefits.
